Solve problems involving linear equations, including those derived from formulas (ACMNA235)
This resource is a collection of screen displays of questions relating to linear equations and inequations. Graphing tasks involve determining the coordinates of two points on the linear function. Other tasks are presented as multiple-choice questions and involve finding slopes of lines, calculating intercepts with the ...
These illustrated information sheets revise the methods of solving linear equations from simple ones with one unknown term to ones with the unknown on both sides. The solution of equations containing brackets or fractions is also considered. Full algebraic working is shown for sample equations. Students solve equations ...
This is a 13-page guide for teachers. It introduces the use of formulas, and includes substitution and the solution of the resulting equations.
This collection of resources for Applied Mathematics has helpful links for the six Focus Studies - Communication, Driving, Design, Household Finance, Human Body and Personal Resource Usage. A laptop-friendly resource.
In this animated presentation students are provided with three examples of mathematical modelling in real-world settings. Linear functions are used to model population growth, Hooke's Law and parcel shipping charges.
These illustrated information sheets revise the rules for vertical and horizontal lines and the meaning of m and c in the rule y = mx + c. Students find the rule for a given linear graph. Tables of values are created so that graphs can be plotted. This resource is one of a series of online resources from the BBC's Bitesize ...
These seven learning activities, which focus on 'representations' using a variety of tools (software) and devices (hardware), illustrate the ways in which content, pedagogy and technology can be successfully and effectively integrated in order to promote learning. In the activities, teachers use different representations ...
Using an illustrated report from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, this Teacher guide provides ten learning sequences that engage students in the analysis and interpretation of data about Australian imports and exports. Students: identify Australia's major exports and imports; investigate international trade ...
This is a 17-page guide for teachers. It continues the discussion of factorisation. In particular, the techniques for the factorisation of quadratic expressions are presented.
This is a 19-page guide for teachers. It introduces quadratic equations and methods for solving them.
This resource is a professional learning package designed for pre-service teachers. It demonstrates and investigates the interrelated content, pedagogy and technology knowledge used in a series of mathematics lessons that focus on looking for a relationship between two variables. The resource provides video footage of a ...
Plot some data points on a graph. Estimate the position for a line of best fit. Use a graphing tool to check your estimate. Add more points to see how they affect the position of the line of best fit.
Plot functions, create tables, add sliders and animate your graphs. Touch points of interest on the graph to show maximums, minimums and points of intersection. Type in an equation and watch the calculator solve the problem. Free when reviewed on 12/5/2015.
This is a web resource consisting of a database of selected indicators for monitoring progress towards green growth in OECD countries, including Australia, and BRIICS economies - Brazil, Russian Federation, India, Indonesia, China and South Africa - from 1990 to 2012. The indicators are based on environmental and resource ...
